more work and things I have seen and found over my weekend stay in London, this time in the Tate Modern.
Michael Craig-Martin is powerful influence on the emerging British artists. His early work made deliberate reference to the American artists he most admired, such as Donald Judd, Jasper Johns and Robert Morris. Although he was particularly affected by Minimalism and used ordinary household materials in his sculptures, playing against the logic of his sources.Craig-Martin continued working in various forms, always maintaining an elegant restraint and conceptual clarity. During the 1990s the focus of his work shifted decisively to painting, with the same range of boldly outlined motifs and luridly vivid colour schemes in unexpected combinations applied both to works on canvas, and to increasingly complex installations of wall paintings
Craig-Martin’s work is in many public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Tate Gallery, London.
